Cradles to Crayons Winter Clothing Drive!
This Sunday from 1-4 pm
This Sunday November 22nd from 1-4 pm, MB Associates and their families will be hosting a Winter Gear Children's Clothing Drive at the West Newton Hill Neighborhood Club.
"Families we work with are in great need financially. Most of the time Cradles to Crayons donations are the only winter clothes [these children] receive." Shares Tania A. Soares.
Founded in Boston, Cradles to Crayons is a non-profit that provides young children (ages 12 and under) living in low-income and homeless situations with they essentials they need. This year, the non-profit is aiming to supply 32,500 Boston children with coats, hats and other warm essentials to survive the brutal New England winter ahead. The need for winter items is huge - 6,000 additional hats and gloves alone are required to meet the projected need for this winter.
This family focused event will include a donation drop off with the opportunity to learn more about the organization and ways to get involved, children's activities and snacks.
One and all are welcome! If you are unable to make it to the actual event, call (617) 467-3426 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a pick-up at your convenience. Monetary donations can be made here: http://mbassociatesre.com/events/
